Out on the field
The majority of the work F4L does is in communities with the generous support of funders. Coaches work with adults and youths using the approved curriculum and take a holistic approach to attending to the relevant social issues. Depending on the type of training, football skills and education can be combined into a fun format of reinforcing the learning.
F4L also has a peer education programme called the Assistant Coach Game Plan that has been implemented in communities, looking at uplifting individuals and the community.
All our trainings are carefully assessed and Monitoring and Evaluation forms a strong part of our organization. Prior to training participants complete a questionnaire that will later be compared to the post-‐training questionnaire to gauge efficacy of training and assess the facilitators themselves. Comprehensive reports on the training are compiled with figures carefully verified for reporting purposes. We have a strong reference list and a heartwarming range of anecdotal evidence showing that F4L has made a significant change in many individuals’ lives.
